Grandma’s sweet-n-sour pickles


Just as with the delicious dill pickles from yesterday that you can find here, Grandma’s sweet-n-sour pickles are a summertime staple in our home. In fact, I cannot possibly consume a burger, grilled sausage or cracker with cheese without one of these crunchy pieces of sunshine on top. There is just something magical about the way they snap in your mouth, bringing the perfect amount of acid and sweet–not being overly bitter or sweet–always just right.

Is your mouth watering as much as mine?

Make some, you’ll see. After all, these are from my Grandma’s kitchen. It’s not like they could possibly be bad.

Enough chit chat! Let’s get to making!
